1 1 ELECTROCHEMISTRY REDOX Reduction gain of electrons Cu + 2e > Cu(s) Oxidation removal of electrons Zn(s) > Zn + 2e HALF CELLS these are systems involving oxidation or reduction there are several types METALS IN CONTACT WITH SOLUTIONS OF THEIR IONS C O E R Reaction Cu + 2e Cu(s) Electrode copper Solution Cu (1M) - 1M copper sulphate solution otential V Z I N C Reaction Zn + 2e Zn(s) Electrode zinc Solution Zn (1M) - 1M zinc sulphate solution otential V GASES IN CONTACT WITH SOLUTIONS OF THEIR IONS acid Reaction 2H + + 2e H 2 (g) Electrode platinum - you need a metal to get electrons in and out Solution H + (1M) - 1M hydrochloric acid or 0.5M sulphuric Gas hydrogen at 100ka (1 atm) pressure otential 0.00V IMORTANCE This half cell is known as... THE STANDARD HYDROGEN ELECTRODE SOLUTIONS OF IONS IN TWO DIFFERENT OXIDATION STATES L A T I N U M Reaction Fe 3+ + e Fe Electrode platinum - you need a metal to get electrons in and out Solution Fe 3+ (1M) and Fe (1M) otential V SOLUTIONS OF OXIDISING AGENTS IN ACID SOLUTION L A T I N U M Reaction MnO 4 + 8H + + 5e Mn + 4H 2 O(l) Electrode platinum - you need a metal to get electrons in and out Solution MnO 4 (1M) and Mn (1M) and H + otential V

2 2 F325 Electrochemistry CELL OTENTIAL Measurement each electrode / electrolyte combination has its own half-reaction it is impossible to measure the potential of a single electrode BUT... you can measure the potential difference between two electrodes value is measured relative to a refernce cell under standard conditions STANDARD ELECTRODE OTENTIAL The potential difference of a cell when the electrode is connected to the standard hydrogen electrode under standard conditions The value is affected by... temperature pressure of any gases solution concentration The ultimate reference is the STANDARD HYDROGEN ELECTRODE. Hydrogen (100 ka) CONDITIONS temperature 298K solution conc 1 mol dm -3 with respect to H + hydrogen 100 ka (1 atm) pressure latinum WHY USE LATINUM? - you need an inert metal to get the electrons in / out H + (1M) Standard hydrogen electrode E = 0.00V However, as it is difficult to set up, secondary standards are used. Secondary standards The standard hydrogen electrode (SHE) is hard to set up so it is easier to use a more convenient secondary standard which has been calibrated against the SHE. Calomel the calomel electrode contains Hg 2 Cl 2 it has a standard electrode potential of +0.27V is used as the left hand electrode to determine the potential of an unknown to obtain the E value of the unknown cell ADD 0.27V to the measured potential

3 3 Experimental determination of E In the diagram below the standard hydrogen electrode is shown coupled up to a zinc half cell. The voltmeter reading gives the standard electrode potential of the zinc cell. V Salt Bridge (KCl) Hydrogen (100 ka) Zinc latinum Zn (1M) H + (1M) salt bridge filled with saturated potassium chloride solution enables the circuit to be completed THE ELECTROCHEMICAL SERIES Layout Species are arranged in order of their standard electrode potentials to get a series that tells us how good a species is (as an oxidising agent) at picking up electrons. All equations are written as reduction processes... i.e. gaining electrons e.g. Al e Al (s) E = -1.66V Cl 2(g) + 2e 2Cl E = +1.36V The species with the more positive potential (E value) will oxidise one (i.e. reverse the equation) with a lower E value. Example What will happen if an Sn (s) /Sn cell and a Cu (s) Cu cell are connected? Write out the appropriate equations Cu + 2e Cu (s) ; E = +0.34V Sn + 2e Sn (s) ; E = -0.14V the half reaction with the more positive E value is more likely to work it gets the electrons by reversing the half reaction with the lower E value therefore Cu > Cu (s) and Sn (s) > Sn the overall reaction is Cu + Sn (s) > Sn + Cu (s) the cell voltage is the difference in E values... (+0.34) - (-0.14) = V

4 4 F325 Electrochemistry THE ELECTROCHEMICAL SERIES E / V F 2(g) + 2e 2F (aq H 2 O 2 + 2H + + 2e 2H 2 O (l) MnO 4 + 8H + + 5e Mn + 4H 2 O (l) bo 2(s) + 4H + + 2e b + 2H 2 O (l) Ce 4+ + e Ce Cl 2(g) + 2e 2Cl Cr 2 O 7 + I4H + + 6e 2Cr H 2 O (l) MnO 2(s) + 4H + + 2e Mn + 2H 2 O (l) Br 2(l) + 2e 2Br Ag + + e Ag (s) Fe 3+ + e Fe O 2(g) + 2H + + 2e H 2 O 2(l) I 2(s) + 2e 2I Cu + + e Cu (s) Cu + 2e Cu (s) Cu + e Cu Sn e Sn H + + 2e H 2(g) 0.00 b + 2e b (s) Sn + 2e Sn (s) Ni + 2e Ni (s) Cr 3+ + e Cr Fe + 2e Fe (s) Zn + 2e Zn (s) Al e Al (s) Mg + 2e Mg (s) Na + + e Na (s) Ca + 2e Ca (s) K + + e K (s) reaction is more likely to go right LH species better oxidising agents RH species weaker reducing agents RH species are harder to oxidise LH species are easier to reduce reactivity of metals decreases reactivity of non-metals increases Interpretation F 2 is the best oxidising agent - highest E value; most feasible reaction K + is the worst oxidising agent - lowest E value; least feasible reaction K is the best reducing agent - most feasible reverse reaction Use of E used to predict the feasibility (likelihood) of redox and cell reactions in theory ANY REDOX REACTION WITH A OSITIVE E VALUE WILL WORK in practice, it will proceed if the E value is greater than V An equation with a more positive E value will reverse a less positive one.

5 5 Combining half-cells In the cell, copper has a more positive E value (+0.34V) than zinc (-0.76V). the zinc metal is more reactive it dissolves to give ions Zn (s) > Zn + 2e V Salt Bridge (KCl) + the electrons produced go round the external circuit to the copper Zinc electrons are picked up by copper ions and copper is deposited Cu + 2e > Cu (s) Zn Cu Copper The voltage of the cell is 1.10V ie (+0.34V) - (-0.76V) Cell diagrams These give a diagrammatic representation of what is happening in a cell. lace the cell with the more positive E value on the RHS of the diagram. ANODE Zn Zn Cu Cu (s) V (s) + CATHODE zinc is in contact with the solutions are the solution of copper ions a solution of zinc ions joined by a salt bridge is in contact with copper Drawing it out as shown indicates that... the cell reaction goes from left to right the electrons go round the external circuit from left to right the cell voltage is E (RHS) - E (LHS). In this way it must be positive oxidation takes place at the anode and reduction at the cathode Conclusion The reaction(s) will proceed from left to right OXidation Zn (s) > Zn + 2e at the ANODE REDuction Cu + 2e > Cu (s) at the CATHODE Electrons Go from the anode to the cathode via the external circuit Cell reaction Zn (s) + Cu > Zn + Cu (s) Cell voltage E (RHS) - E (LHS) = 0.34V - (- 0.76V) = 1.10V

6 6 F325 Electrochemistry Example Will this reaction be spontaneous? Sn (s) + Cu > Sn + Cu (s) Method Write out the half equations Cu + 2e Cu (s) ; E = +0.34V as reductions with their E values Sn + 2e Sn (s) ; E = -0.14V The reaction which occurs involves the more positive one reversing the other therefore Cu > Cu (s) and Sn (s) > Sn If this is the equation you want (which it is) then it will be spontaneous The cell voltage is the difference in E values... (+0.34V) - (-0.14V) = V NOTE: DOUBLING AN EQUATION DOES NOT DOUBLE THE E VALUE ½Cl 2(g) + e Cl E = V Cl 2(g) + 2e 2Cl E = V Q.1 Which of the following reactions occur spontaneously? Fe (s) + Zn > Fe + Zn (s) Sn Fe > 2Fe 3+ + Sn Sn I > I 2(s) + Sn Cl 2(g) + 2Br > Br 2(g) + 2Cl I 2(g) + 2Br > Br 2(g) + 2I 2H + + Zn (s) > H 2(s) + Zn For those that work, calculate the cell voltage. IMORTANT WARNING Limitation of using E to predict the feasibility of a reaction Kinetic Standard electrode potentials are not always accurate in their predictions. They indicate if a reaction is possible but cannot say what the rate will be. Some reactions will not be effective as they are too slow. Conditions Because TEMERATURE and CONCENTRATION affect the value of a standard electrode potential any variation can also affect the probability of a reaction taking place. Concentrations do change during a reaction. Apply le Chatelier s principle to predict the change in E

7 7 Q.2 Explain what reactions, if any, will occur if aqueous solutions of KCl, KBr and KI are treated with; a) acidified KMnO 4 b) acidified K 2 Cr 2 O 7. Q.3 Using E values, explain why zinc reacts with dilute acids to produce hydrogen gas but silver doesn t.q.4 Construct a cell diagram for a cell made up from Ni /Ni and Zn /Zn. Work out the overall reaction and calculate the potential difference of the cell. Q.5 Why is hydrochloric acid not used to acidify potassium manganate(vii)? Q.6 Explain why the chemistry of copper(i) in aqueous solution is limited. The following half equations will help. Name the overall process which takes place. Cu + + e Cu (s) E = V Cu + e Cu + E = V
